If you want to be able to suspend to hard drive, then swap *needs* to be
bigger than RAM.

Consider whether you will be increasing the size of your RAM in the
future, and take that into account when allocating swap space.  For
instance, if you currently had 2 gig, but your motherboard can handle 8
gig, it might be worth making your swap at least 8 gig, so you don't
have to change swap if you add more RAM.
